Great Kindness Challenge
This week at Bess Truman we are participating in the Great Kindness Challenge.  Students went home with a sheet filled with random acts of kindness. When they achieve one they mark it off their list!

Children's Author Visits

We had the pleasure of having Julia Cook visit out school this week. She is a children's author who is a former counselor and teacher. She has published over 70 books.  She read us some of her awesome books and also gave away some autographed copies of some of her books.  She also brought along her dogs who are certified service dogs. 
Her website is www.juliacookonline.com .


Good Afternoon!
The Redettes will be hosting a clinic for young dancers in grades kindergarten through 8 on Saturday February 6 at 1:00 pm.

Understanding Feedback on Student Work

You will notice this year that student work is graded differently than it has been in the past for 1st - 4th grade.  In order to give better feedback about students’ present level of performance, we are reporting on individual standards.  We are giving feedback in the form of levels of mastery rather than letter grades that are based on a percentage of points earned.  

When you see your child’s papers marked with a 3, 2, or 1, here is what that means.

3 = On Target for the grade level standard

2 = Approaching the grade level standard

1 = Emerging knowledge/skills on the grade level standard.

In student terms it looks like this:
